DreamTab Becomes Overheated ¶ 

My DreamTab's screen turns off while I'm using it.

Overheating ¶ 

Do not expose your DreamTab to large amounts of heat. A common occurrence is leaving it in the car during hot weather. The temperature changes can harm a device because it can damage the motherboard.

Faulty Battery ¶ 

If your DreamTab powers on only when the charger is connected, then the battery should be replaced. It is sometimes common to have a faulty battery and replacing it solves the problem most of the time.

Unresponsive LCD Screen ¶ 

I am unable to operate my DreamTab because my screen is frozen. Frozen screens are a common problem in touch screen devices.

Burnt-out Display ¶ 

It is possible the screen is not producing images because the display is burnt out. The display must be replaced.

Dirty Screen ¶ 

The residue build-up on the screen may interfere with the multi-touch screen functionality. Cleaning the display with a lint-free or microfiber cloth will alleviate the problem. Having the screen with excess dirt can also make a device not respond since too much dirt has been built in.

Cracked Screen ¶ 

If the screen is damaged, it is recommended replacing your display to avoid personal injury, and to restore functionality back to your device.

DreamTab Produces Distorted Audio ¶ 

Sound cannot be heard through the speakers.

The Audio Jack Produces Distorted Sound in Headphones ¶ 

The problem may be your headphones. Use another pair to see if that is the problem. If it is not, the problem might be interference from a damaged audio jack.

DreamTab is Muted ¶ 

The muted icon displayed in volume settings shows a line through the speaker symbol. Press the volume rocker up to enable sound.

Headphones are Plugged into DreamTab ¶ 

If headphones are plugged into the DreamTab, the audio will be sent directly to the headphones instead of the speaker.

DreamTab Fails to Charge ¶ 

When I remove my DreamTab from its charger, it dies within minutes of usage.

Battery Drains Quickly ¶ 

You may have an overused battery due to excessive charging, or a faulty battery.

Change Power Source ¶ 

Try charging another device on the socket you are plugged into, to ensure that the socket is working properly.

The Charger is Damaged ¶ 

Try plugging the DreamTab into a different charger if available.

The Battery is Dead ¶ 

The battery may be unable to retain a charge and will need to be replaced.

Trouble Connecting to WiFi ¶ 

My DreamTab has a weak internet connection and does not connect to a wireless network.

Tablet Cannot Connect to WiFi ¶ 

Go to the "Parental Controls" located under "Mommy/Daddy Mode" and enable the internet connection.

Weak Router/Modem Signal ¶ 

Make sure that you are within range of your wireless router, then confirm that the WiFi is enabled on your tablet. If neither solutions fix the problem, contact your internet service provider.

We have 2 nabi dream tabs currently unusable. They are both a little over a year old. My son has not played with his more than 6 months due to the fact it keeps dying on us to where you can not turn it back on. My daughters us like this now too. This is the 3rd time it has happened to my son's. The first time I sat on the phone for 2 hrs with Nabi getting it restored. I can't get either one to factory reset, now. Really need help getting them going again. Not sure why since they will just die again. But the kids love them.

Help.....any thoughts or ideas???????
